Avon calling


And what my Speedmaster MkII was calling out, loud and clear, was 'I'm knackered'.

I'd put a new tube in it and it still wasn't holding air... and no wonder really. The bead was rotten and it wasn't until today that I realised tyres have date codes! As you can see, my tyre – which I've been running on the Pan for 18 months – was made in 1969. I bought it fitted to my super-skinny Jones rim off the 'Bay and it seemed sound so I used it.

Until now. I took it to the pros this time, and the bloke who removed it asked incredulously "you weren't using this on public roads were you?".

Hey, some people just don't get it.

A new one's on order. I also didn't know until today that all Avons are still made in England.

They last well!

Joel's Panhead


Joel is one of our favorite riding buddies of all time. He's had a ton of old bikes since I've known him, but I've never seen him on one that was actually totally finished. He was sitting on this nice old '48 frame and engine for a while and decided this would be the one. He reached out to several small shops for help, JD at Flying Monkey Fabrication, Kim Boyle at BCMSlim's Fab and Bob at Temecula Motorcycle Service all pitched in on this thing. In the end, Joel decided that crusty old bikes are more his style and this one's gonna have to go before he scratches it. It's for sale right now on eBay, or you can hit up the old bike broker otto@biltwellinc.com directly if you are interested.
